How a Door Closer Works

A manual door closer helps you open a door and keeps you from having to close it physically. When a door closer is correctly installed, you should feel some initial resistance when you first open the door. This gives you an idea of how heavy the door is. After that initial resistance, the door glides open smoothly. When you stop applying resistance to the door, a spring in the door closer causes the door closer's arm to return the door gently to its frame.

Door Closer Repair

Many door closers are incorrect for the job, or they may need critical maintenance. The door should have a closer sturdy enough to bear its weight, with heavy-duty springs. If your door has the wrong kind of closer, this can cause serious misalignments. Over time you may see damage to the door or its closer. Another common problem with door closer repair is faulty tools. You should always hire an experienced specialist to maintain your door closer with the proper tools, to avoid problems such as misalignments, doorframe damage and unexpected motion of the door.

If your door closer's seal is broken or there's a missing screw or broken O-ring in the mechanism, this leaves your hardware vulnerable. This type of damage leads to oil leaks. A lack of lubrication may cause the door to open or close too quickly, which can endanger the door's users. In these situations, you should always have a trained professional perform door closer repair and add oil. Another common problem with doors is when the door is difficult to lock. In addition to being a security risk, this may damage the doorframe, the door closer and the locking mechanism over time.
